All the fun of Fulford Show
HUNDREDS of visitors enjoyed the sunshine at one of York’s oldest public events, the annual Fulford Show.
Yesterday’s weather was almost the opposite of last year’s show, which was blighted by heavy rain, and the turnout was expected to be among the highest the show had seen in recent years.
Father-of-two Gary Duncan, 39, of Heworth, said: “It’s a really nice afternoon out, and a great place to come with the kids.
“It’s buzzing with people and there’s a great atmosphere.”
The event dates back to the middle of the 19th century and was held in Fulford School fields and social hall, with trophies awarded for best flowers and arrangements, fruits, vegetables, cookery and handicrafts.
Yesterday, there were stalls, including food, music and cookery demonstrations, dancing by members of The Dance Factory, a Zumba demonstration, and a tug of war between local pub teams.
Other attractions included a bouncy slide, teacup ride, charity stalls, fire engine and crews speaking to the public, a miniature steam train, a cask ale bar and jazz band.
